Discussion in 'White Hat SEO' started by misteryou., Feb 4, 2012.
i just checked the code source again of a post and i see h1 tag
and when i use h1 tag checker online they say only the blog title and description are in h1 and all post in h2
Unless you know how to recode templates and their CSS, then the H tagging is set in stone. It's a function of the WordPress (or whatever) CMS.
Most WP templates use H1 as the blog title and H2 as the post title by default.
Don't get hung up on this though; As long as your keyword is in the page title and one of the H tags, you're good to go.
If I'm not mistaken, most of the WP themes I use have the default of making Page and Post Titles as H1 tags. Then in the content, you can add-in h1,h2,h3... tags.
Don't over-concern yourself with this though.
If some pages have more than 1 h1, it shouldn't negatively affect anything. Google has said that pages with more than 1 h1, won't be punished; as it can be used to properly organize the content. However, don't overdo it; because they'll definitely lose their effectiveness.
Ideally, I like to 1 h1 tag per page, with the main keyword in it. Then 2 h2's, with similar keywords in it, but not necessarily an exact match to the h1. Then feel free to mix in 2 or so h3's and h4's. This is for a fully optimized page though. I have tons of pages ranking, that have just the h1 tag, and no others.
Be sure to focus on the rest of the On Page SEO as well, including title tags, meta description, and meta keywords (even though Google doesn't really use it). If you're going full On Page, mix in the alt attributes, image names, italics, bolds, keyword locations, proximity's, and densities.
All mentioned above is correct. Also, if you are new in this, some of wordpress plugins for SEO should help you, try plugins like All in One SEO Pack, or Yoast's WP SEO Plugin, Easy WP SEO etc.
of course i have but as i am new i like to learn this stuff;
WHAT they do HOW and WHY
thx anyway i am clear now
every seo plugin has their own scoring and keyword density. don't let this confusing you.
h1 and h2 with a good inner link between every post is enough for me
